In present culture, mental health is still often seen as taboo. I believe that we must eliminate the stigma of mental health for all cultures, and I have especially pushed to promote this within the African American community. Being one, of very few, African American, male, therapists in the metro St. Louis region has been both a burden, and great opportunity to this end.
I love sports and education. I have been a local football, basketball, and track & field coach/consultant for over 25 years. I specialize in supporting life and sport balance while using therapeutic methods to enhance thoughts and beliefs that positively affect performance-"mental agility & resilience". I also speak for various organizations and institutions on a variety of subjects from clinical topics, relationships, educational equity, sports coaching techniques, and mental training. I facilitate workshops and consult with schools and organizations on DEI (diversity/equity/inclusion) practices.
